How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Sally Wolf, Executive Director, Illinois Balanced and Restorative Justice Project and Lina Cramer, Principal, Wisdom-Exchange were my trainers for a World Cafe event held in Springfield, IL, November, 2007. The Cafes were created as part of Connecting the Pathways Conference, a collaborative juvenile justice gathering

Circle Training in 2008 through the Community Justice for Youth Institute (CJYI) added another practice to my list.

And through Sally, Lina, and others efforts the first Illinois Art of Hosting Retreat, Creating Healthy Communities So Children and Families Thrive, was held May 2009, in Springfield, IL. I was able to attend the 2010 Retreat as well.
